The Brown Schools was a national chain of treatment facilities for kids with emotional and behavioral issues.

The first school was founded in 1940 by Bert Brown and his wife.

They decided to go out of business due to a number of lawsuits in 2005.

They purchased a controlling interest in the CEDU chain in 1998 and ran it until they closed.
